Yes I'm not rolling anymore, I'm sliding.
It has been raining whole night (again) and getting in the garden is almost mission impossible.
But not to someone stubborn as I am. I just had to try. So I took my baskets(one empty and one with gardening stuff), hoe, rake, pitchfork, and a big blanket and went to the garden.
There is a big downhill from our house till the garden. Usually it's not a problem for me to get down cause I always have my swimming shoes.
But not after weeks of rain. I stepped down(even went close to the fence to have something to grab on) and fiiiiiijuuuuuuuu I just slid down the yard. And as I'm such a genius I didn't have a free hand so I could only grab the fence with my teeth :D I ended up leaning inside the flowerbed and bumping my hip on the fence.
The best part is it didn't occur to me to drop things...oh no I was still holding them ☺
(even left a slide on the ground)
It would be better if I didn't even try to enter the garden. I couldn't do almost anything. Everything is so wet, I just cleaned and dag 2 rows of beans
The rest of them were impossible to dig. I should also cover the potatoes with soil but there is no soil...only mud.
So I went and covered my flowerbed with grass I scythed last week. I'm hoping this way I'll stop weeds from growing for the next 2 months so I'll have a clean bed when I'll be planting my seedlings.
I also collected the rest of elderberry flowers. This ones were even bigger and prettier than the last ones.
I don't even have to say I didn't go home the same way I got in the garden. I went around the yard. I got trough my columbines and the fence (bumblebees weren't happy with me snooping around)
Again I had to climb but this time it was easier. I could grab the fence since I was smart enough to throw half of the stuff up the hill.
Last year at this spot was a beautiful purple lilac but last winter it got pulled out by horrible snow blizzard. This is the first time this blank space was useful for something ☺
If the weather continues to be so twisted I'm getting myself a sledge...at least I will slide down the garden with style ☺
